All-Flash Increases Data Accuracy, Productivity and Efficiency


Customer:

WorkPac Group is an Australian, privately-owned organization providing workforce management, project management and training and technology solutions to the resources, construction, industrial and healthcare sectors. Established in Perth in 1997, WorkPac has grown to more than 35 locations in metropolitan and regional Australia.

Challenges:

  • WorkPac’s previous storage solution was unable to support a 40% increase in business uplift across the enterprise.
  • Storage infrastructure was approaching the end of its life cycle.

Use Case:

  • Storage-intensive bespoke applications
  • Backup windows

Business Transformation:

Across the enterprise, user satisfaction is up, and the IT team has been freed up to focus on higher- value tasks. The success of the deployment has led to the business considering artificial intelligence applications to accelerate business processes and increase data accuracy, productivity and efficiency.

IT Transformation:

  • Migration from spinning disk to an all-flash environment took less than two weeks.
  • The time required to back-up databases reduced from 150 minutes to 20 minutes (7.5x shorter backup windows).
  • CRM dashboard load times reduced from 30 seconds to a handful.

“Time was slashed from 150 minutes to 20 minutes for some of the larger workloads. The time savings have had a significant impact on our ability to service the uplift in business.”
